I bought sponge filters,T5 bulbs, Purigen, Eheim 2217, Aquaclear filters ,some heaters and breeding boxes. Total saving comparing to Amazon or Bigal's $90.Not bad. Like 30% total.

How many of you all use these breeder boxes?
I have one setup on a new tank that is still cycling that I plan to throw some of my high grade males and a female to try and get some higher grade babies. The biggest thing I heard from people using them though is although fresh water is pulled in, it doesn't always stay that clean so I made a mini canister air drive filter from an old fish food container that is in it as well that I'm hoping will aid in filtering the area while my high grade males hopefully have some fun. Still waiting for my netlea soil to finish leeching though :(

he's pointing out that there's a cheap brand of the breeding boxes i sell on kensfish.com, although with shipping they're not that great of a steal

Since this thread was revived ^, my question is, "What is the benefit of this type of breeder box over a net one?" I'm getting ready to play geneticist and I bought both of these:

It's outside the tank, so doesn't clutter the inside, plus adds water volume to the tank. It also guarantees constant circulation through the breeder box, albeit slow circulation, but circulation nonetheless.

You can also put substrate inside the breeder box.

I have one with substrate, moss and one Fluval prefilter sponge with air stone inside-to work like sponge filter. So far everything is OK there are 8 shrimps inside. I'm thinking to replace air bubbler for flow with small water pump-elite micro or similar. Will see the result.
